dead in the crash. 15 injured and 11 people still missing. investigators have downloaded the information from the black boxes and they will analyze the crashes from the dash cam video. they will look at the brief transmission from the cockpit which declared an engine flameout and may day. listen. >> may day. >> cnn's anna coren is live by the river in t'aipei where the plane crashed. anna. >> reporter: just chilling when you hear whether it is the pilot or co-pilot after the words may day, may day. that was said moments after they took off from the domestic airport here in t'aipei. we are standing over that bridge that the plane hit. the left wing clipping the overpass which is apart from us
before it plunged into the keelung river behind us. it is amazing when you think of the people who survived. then the people who died on impact and the many who would have drowned because they were stuck in their seatbelts. these are the stories we are hearing from survivors recovering in hospital. the divers have been scouring the river where they believe the 11 bodies still remain. they have been traveling up and down for several miles. they set up a drag net further downstream in hope of catching the bodies. the divers got out of the water a short time ago. it is now very dark here. visibility obviously nonexistent in the water. they have been struggling all day because of the poor visibility. it has been muddy and wet. the water is extremely cold.
these are some of the obstacles and challenges they have. in speaking to one of the divers he said we want these people to go home. we want them to go home to their loved ones. families have been gathering here in t'aipei to retrieve the bodies. many people on board were chinese tourists who had come to t'aipei. this is an ongoing investigation. we saw a short time ago the military removing more debris. the large chunk of the fuselage was lifted on a truck this afternoon. it is being driven away as part of the investigation. authorities looking at the two black boxes to get a better idea too what went wrong. certainly from what we are hearing from the aviation body here in taiwan is that they are certainly looking at engine failure as being the cause of the horrific crash.
>> they have footage and black boxes and that may day call as well. anna coren in t'aipei, thanks. new information on the deadly train crash north of new york city. a train slammed into an suv stopped on the tracks tuesday night. the crash ignited an inferno that consumed the first passenger car killing six and injuring 15. this is the deadliest accident in the history of the metro north line. two mysteries facing investigators this morning. what happened with the driver of the suv? why didn't she move the suv off the tracks as the signal blared? this is a crash that is rarely dangerous for passengers. let's turn it over to rene markleymarch marsh. >> reporter: investigators could
start the process of interviewing the train's crew. we know this metro north train left grand central station tuesday evening. when it got to this suburb, just about 30 miles outside of new york city, there was an suv sit in the middle of the tracks. it is unclear why the suv was stopped on the tracks. we do know that vehicles are allowed to cross over the railroad tracks in the area, but only when the traffic signal is green and gives the driver a go. once the train collided with the suv, that triggered a fiery explosion. investigators believe the fuel from the suv is what really ignited the flames here. as you know six people lost their lives. one of those the driver of the suv. we also know that investigators now have the recorders from the train. two of the recorders. they downloaded the information. as early as today, we could find
out how fast the train was traveling and when the brakes were applied. christine. thanks. this morning outrage across the arab world over the death of mu'ath al kaseasbeh at the hands of isis militants. governments and groups on opposite sides, the regime and assad, are now denouncing this killing. one arab member of the u.s. coalition stepped back from the fight. united arab emirates stopped flights in december when al kaseasbeh was taken prisoner. the new york times reports uae is worried about the safety of its pilots. jordan's king and his people they say they want vengeance. the king told u.s. house members the only problem we will have is running out of fuel and bullets. the king within this hour will
meet with a group of aides to map out strategy with new involvement and air strikes. let's go to atika shubert in amman for the latest. atika. >> reporter: that is right. we are now hearing that king abdullah may soon leave for the village of karak. that is the town where the al kaseasbeh family lives. he will pay condolences and assure them that their son's death will not be in vain. that means stepping up more strikes against isis and taking the fight directly to isis to syria and iraq. we know from one u.s. official that jordan requested to fly more missions against isis. clearly, jordan wants to do more. it has requested more missions. it needs to carry out the air strikes. with the jordanian public firmly
behind king abdullah he wants to take action as soon as possible. >> he has the window of opportunity to increase the involvement if he so chooses. it will be interesting to see what happens. atika shubert for us. the united states is moving more troops and hardware in northern iraq. teams shifted in the event if a plane is shot down in the isis territory. isis brutality showing no signs of slowing down. united nations committee says militants are selling abducted iraqi children as sex slaves and killing others and using others as human shields. children of all backgrounds have all been rounded up. that is going on in iraq and syria. officials in libya raising alarms that isis is expanding there. isis claimed responsibility for storming one of the largest oil fields in libya. hackers stolen information
from anthem. the company says it is investigating, but up to 80 million records compromised. that makes this one of the largest breaches in corporate history. names and birthdays and social security and addresses and job information and pay data. anthem the second largest health insurer in the united states will notify current and former customers if their data was affected. anthem's ceo says his information was stolen in the hack. no word yet who is behind it. anthem working with security experts and fbi. is the u.s. getting more involved in the war with ukraine. secretary of state john kerry just landing in kiev.

happening this morning, u.s. secretary of state john kerry just arrived in ukraine to hold talks with the country's president and other top officials as the u.s. considers arming ukrainian troops with defensive weapons. senior correspondent matthew chance has the latest for us. they will give millions more in humanitarian aid. any word on the defensive aid? >> reporter: no not so far. that's what everybody in ukraine and in russia will be listening for. whether john kerry has a message from the u.s. administration as to them changing their policy with regard to providing lethal aid to the government's side. the policy at the moment is to provide non lethal aid.
night vision goggles and jackets. they stop short of providing weaponry. the big risk that the administration is having to weigh is what the impact would be. the reaction of the russians and vladimir putin, the russian leader is unpredictable. would he see this as escalation and respond in kind? it is a difficult balance that the u.s. administration has to make. remember the stakes are extremely high. already in the war zone as it stands more than 5,000 people have been killed. if there is an escalation many hundreds of thousands of people's lives could be put at risk. >> matthew chance in moscow thank you. unusual warning from the judge during day three of the testimony in the aaron hernandez murder trial. it happened when the mother of murder victim odin lloyd broke down on the stand after being shown a picture of her son's
dead body. listen to her exchange with prosecutors followed by a stern lecture from judge susan garsh. >> does that depict your son's body? >> yes. >> very important that you manage during this time you are testifying to retain control of your emotions and not to cry while looking at any photo that may be shown to you. >> retain control of your emotions when being shown a photo of your dead child. >> that could be the witness on the stand may be the second worst day of her life. admonished by a judge not to cry. >> a lot of people on twitter telling us they thought the judge went too far. i would like to know what you think if you are a lawyer. testimony resumes at 9:00 a.m. eastern. captain joseph derenzo was the

deadly plane crash. dozens killed. many still missing. this morning, taiwan grounding every model of the plane that crashed to have them inspected. we are live with the latest. outrage grows over the murder of the jordanian pilot killed by isis. new calls for vengeance across the middle east. does this mean the u.s. could get more help fighting the terrorists? and breaking overnight. hacker as erers attacking one of the largest insurance companies in the united states. information of 80 million people stolen. >> replay the tape. >> welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. in the wake of the horrifying crash in taiwan officials are grounding all model atr-72 planes. so far, 32 people confirmed dead in wednesday's crash. 15 injured and 11 are still
missing. investigators have downloaded data from the plane's black boxes. they will analyze dash cam video of the crash and this brief transmission from the cockpit declaring an engine flameout and may day. >> may day. may day. engine flameout. >> cnn's anna coren live at the river where the plane came to rest upside down. anna what is the latest on the investigation at this hour? >> reporter: just chilling isn't it? to hear that may day distress call because you know moments later the plane plunged into the river behind me in t'aipei. we are standing beneath that overpass where the plane's wing clipped that taxi and the bridge and as i say, dived into the river with 58 people on board.
15 people managed to survive. it is a miracle when you see the debris of the plane. they removed most of that debris. today is being sent scouring the river with dozens of dive teams trying to find the 11 bodies still unaccounted for. they set up drag nets several miles downstream to catch the bodies. it is a horrible thought. it is now nightfall. the operation has stopped. the rubber dinghys are still up and down the river. what we are hearing from the sur riff ors in hospital is that when that plane took off, the engine did not sound right. if anything one of the
survivors said that many of the people died because they drowned. they were trapped in their seatbelts which is a horrific thought. certainly engine problems seem to be the way that investigators are heading as far as the investigation goes. they are analyzing the cockpit flight recorders as well as the data recorders. analyzing that information and hoping to make sense of how this was able to unfold. the mayor here in t'aipei is commending the pilot who died in the crash as a hero because they believe that if it wasn't for his actions, that plane could have plowed into a nearby neighborhood and the disaster would have been so much worse. >> anna coren for us with the latest on the investigation. thank you. new information this morning in the deadly train crash north of new york city. this morning, service has

of new york city there was an suv sitting in the middle of the tracks. it is unclear why the suv was stopped on the tracks. we do know that vehicles are allowed to cross over the railroad tracks in the area but only when the traffic signal is green and gives the driver a go. once the train collided with the suv, that triggered a fiery explosion. the investigators believe the fuel from the suv ignited the flames here. six people lost their lives. one of those is the driver of the suv. we know that investigators now have the recorders from the train, two of the recorders. they downloaded that information and as early as today, we could find out how fast this train was traveling and when the brakes were applied. christine, john. >> rene thank you. outrage across the arab

prominent families and tribes across the country to step up the campaign. the al kaseasbeh family will be key. >> atika shubert in amman. thank you. the united states is moving more troops and hardware into northern iraq. search and rescue teams shifted to prepare if a plane is shot down in a controlled area by isis. the militants are selling children as sex slaves and using more as suicide bombers or using them as human shields. children of all backgrounds have been rounded up by isis. that is going on in iraq and syria, officials in libya, isis claimed responsibility for storming one of the largest oil fields in libya. anthem is investigating a

lethal aid. they want missiles and anti-tank weaponry to prosecute the war in the pro-russian rebels. the risk is what impact does that have on the war zone? vladimir putin, would he choose to escalate and redouble his backing for the pro-russian rebels? that is discussed and something that has to be considered carefully carefully. as john kerry arrives in kiev we heard from francois hollande that he and angela merkel are going to kiev to have discussions today with john kerry with the ukrainian leadership. president hollande is taking a solution to the conflict based on the terrorist integrity of ukraine. french and german leaders to offer a peace plan.
